If you or a family member is facing removal, it may be in your best interests to contact an experienced Waukesha immigration lawyer as soon as possible.

Why Talk to an Immigration Lawyer About Deportation?

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you may have options. Your immigration attorney will examine your case and find out whether there are ways to dispute the removal—and whether you have legal grounds to remain in the U.S. despite the Department of Homeland Security’s allegations.

Even if you aren’t able to remain in the U.S., your attorney may be able to find a way to reduce the consequences of being removed, such as through voluntary departure.
DHS Allegations of Removability

In many cases, the Department of Homeland Security will attempt to remove people from the U.S. for crimes of moral turpitude and some felonies. Your attorney may argue that the crime doesn’t actually fit into one of those categories, for example. Even if your crime was considered an aggravated felony, your lawyer might be able to show that you did not commit violence (that’s typically the hallmark of a felony removal case) and therefore removal isn’t appropriate.

Some people are eligible for other forms of relief from deportation, such as asylum, a waiver of inadmissibility, or even a cancellation of removal. Your attorney will know what options are available to you based on your country of origin and the reasons you’re facing deportation.

Going to Court for Removal Proceedings

If you’re fighting deportation, you’ll end up going before an immigration judge. Your attorney can go with you and argue your case there—and for most people, it’s best to work with a Waukesha immigration attorney who’s familiar with the system and the laws governing deportation.
